- Master KG has tweeted a response to Ntsiki Mazwai's rant about not giving Nomcebo Zikole credit for Jerusalema
- Mazwai argued that the song should be credited as Nomcebo feat. Master KG because she wrote and sang the vocals
- Fans had previously weighed in but KG finally responded and he made sure that it was simple but firm
Ntsiki Mazwai has come under fire from Twitter users after suggesting that Nomcebo Zikhole should own half the song Jerusalema because of her vocal and lyrical contributions.
Master KG responded to Mazwai this week after tweeps in the comments wouldn't let go of the issue. Jerusalema has received local and international acclaim since its release, even topping charts in countries like France.
Mazwai argued the credit for the song should be split as she says she hasn't seen Nomcebo credited enough for her efforts on the track. Master KG eventually weighed in with his response.
ZAlebs.com reported that Master KG replied to the poet by saying:
"There are so many songs in this world where people are featured I never saw you or anyone saying this... Or is there something behind what you saying... Anyway bless up my sister, one love."
Fans came to the KG's defence as they argued if there was a lack of credit given to Nomcebo, it was not his fault. Tweeps said that when Master KG does press interviews, mentions or posts about Jerusalema, that he will always add Nomcebo's name as being part of the success.
Ntsiki stood by her position as she mentioned the debate only started because of Twitter discussion about the sidelining of black women and their contributions.
In other Ntsiki-related news, Briefly.co.za reported on the first mention that Ntsiki made about the shared credits for the song Jerusalema. Ntsiki vocalised her opinion on Twitter that Nomcebo Zikode is not receiving enough credit from the international acclaim that the song has garnered.
Ntsiki Mazwai is always vocal and this time directed her argument at the fact that Master KG is receiving all the credit for the hit song. Mazwai argued that since Nomcebo performed all the vocals for the tune that she should be compensated accordingly. She also posed that the song should be called Jerusalema by Nomcebo feat. Master KG.
Mazwai mentioned that society has a habit of erasing the accomplishments of black women, and she wanted to bring it to the public's attention. As is always the case with the internet, people had their own opinions.
